With so many of West Virginia’s communities impacted by the epic flooding last week, Philanthropy West Virginia is suggesting those interested in providing support to the impacted communities contact a local community foundation serving the identified counties to connect you with local partners/resources for flood recovery.
On the call we’ll get the latest updates from Florida’s philanthropic community to learn about the current needs, how local philanthropy is responding and the type of help that is needed now and in future; share some lessons learned by funders from other mass shootings; and explore how philanthropy can play a role right now and down the road.
In the early morning hours of June 12, a gunman opened fire at a gay nightclub in Orlando, FL leaving 49 people dead and over 50 injured. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.
Check out the latest releases from around the nonprofit sector featuring releases from Guidestar, Exponent Partners, GEO, Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, The Center for Effective Philanthropy, and FSG.
A guest post from Nina Stack, President of the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers
We are excited to announce the launch of the Disaster Philanthropy Playbook, the comprehensive resource of best practices and innovative approaches to guide the philanthropic community in responding to future disasters!
A vital new resource is now available to help philanthropy respond to future disasters: the Disaster Philanthropy Playbook. The Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, which is the largest network serving philanthropy in America, is pleased to have been a partner in helping to create the Playbook, working closely with the two organizations that took a lead role in its development: the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers (CNJG), a Forum member, and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP).
For regional association staff only
